The Ultimate Community Organizing Course

  • Subject: [cg] The Ultimate Community Organizing Course
  • From: adam36055@aol.com
  • Date: Thu, 08 Dec 2005 10:02:53 -0500

Friends,

I've been doing community organizing work for over thiry years. And guaranteed
- I  made my share of mistakes.

I WISH I had a copy of "Growing Communities: Community Building and
Organizational Development through Community Gardening," when I started out,
because this book and two day course is the best book on community organizing
I have ever seen. And the course that goes with it, and the basic American
Community Gardening membership ( with a year's subscription to Organic
Gardening magazine) is the best deal I have seen since Manhattan was bought
from the native Americans for 24 dollars.

If you are involved with organizing volunteers for community gardens, parks or
greening projects, block associations, soup kitchens/pantries, community
boards, good government groups, political campaigns,  or have decided you want
to start a grass-roots political organization, or any human endeavor that
requires volunteers... this course is the most comprehensive course on the
nuts and bolts of community organizing I have ever seen.

Bar none.

And the ACGA usually has the best workshop organizers for this program I have
ever seen: people who are great volunteer organizers and teachers. And you get
a great looseleaf book with the course material to copy and share with your
group. And the ACGA membership, with all of those goodies.

Have you ever known me to be completely complimentary about anything?  This
course is absolutely the BEST.

Regards,
Adam Honigman
